It's hilarious that paintball couldn't settle on a standard as basic as this after all of these years.

Taking advantage of the fact that during most games there are a number of non combatants milling about in one form or another is never s cool strategy to me and I think encourages generally scummy play.

Good confessions
I kept pelting a guy in a big game that was laying under a tree, fiddling around. When he finally stood up, he flapped his arms at me like I was overshooting. If he had flapped an arm earlier, it would have been simpler.

In a small game, after some running action through the middle, I stopped, said "HIT", and put my right arm and marker fully up in the air. I got hit right in the top of the ribs under my arm. It was quick enough and from far away to be just a late shot, but it really warmed me up. Fortunately it was just that one hit, and I got off the field without opening my mouth.

Yeah but "out" rhymes with "bounce" which is something people also yell out quite often... just another wrench in the works

I think we should make that an MCB challenge and all compare results.

I've switched to either "out" or "no break"

It's one of those things there really should be standards. Gun overhead pointing in air equals out and anyone not doing this can / should be shot so none of the walking up sideline tricks which are not in the spirit of the game. That's like putting your colored tape on your least visible side and ticking it part way in your pants or something. It works but it's not how to play.

I tagged a ref in the dome recently because I lost track of who was where and from my spot he appeared to be crouched behind a bunker. I just saw a mask peeking up, but he was actually a ways back on the sideline.

Pissed him off good and I attempted to apologize after the game but I'm not sure he was really listening. He just kind of went off on a rant about getting a real job (his words). I sorta wonder if he wasn't tasting the devil's candies between games, tbh

Tell you what, though, I sure felt ****ty about it

Haha on the note of shooting refs, my first time playing speedball waaaaay back in the day, I accidentally shot a ref in the nuts. I saw movement in my peripheral vision, and thought I was being bunkered so I spun and shot. Saw the ref (the source of the movement) collapse from the shot. Oooooops.

On the topic of the OP, I had a similar experience last time I was playing where I as chasing a dude down (guy was playing cat and mouse) and ended up catching up to him and we started trading shots while both of us were standing out in the open. I saw him start to flinch and turn away, so I called out. Meant to say "Are you hit?" but ended up just saying, "hit?" So I walked off cussing at myself for calling myself out when I didn't get hit.

My worst one, the one that I still feel guilty about even though it happened 2 years ago, was during a zombie game. One of the game rules is that the ref will call out Humans!! and Zombies!! and players on that team will yell out so that humans can't camp under some bush or something. Keeps the game going. So I was sneaking up on this guy (might have been 2 guys), and the ref calls Zombies!! I'm a zombie but I just spent however many minutes getting the drop on this guy so I hesitated, and then the ref called Humans!! and the moment passed. I was thinking, well I can't just call out now, that would be weird. So I waited a bit and then crept over the ridge and hit the dude. Or dudes. IDK.

Countless instances of accidental playing on, multiple accidental overshootings (which I really feel bad about because I throw a hissy fit every time I get overshot).

None of us are perfect.
